There'll be some surprises in Banksy's exhibition.

Street artist Banksy is bringing a huge exhibition of works to Melbourne with 80 stenciling works, screen prints and several pieces that have never been seen.

Because he's a dude, there'll also be a massive courtyard bar adorned with art from local street artists including Adnate and a fleet of ever-changing food trucks.

Basically, once you go, chances are you won't want to leave.

Banksy classics will be on display including Girl with Balloon, Flag wall and Laugh Now.

If you think this is your opportunity to trot out some psuedo art speak with words like 'juxtaposition' and 'ephemerality' Banksy has a warning for you.

The exhibition comes one year after he opened 'anti-fun park' Dismaland in Britain, that attracted more than 150,000 visitors in the first month -- so be sure to make a booking for the Federation Square exhibition.
